Learn Your Risk. Take Control.

For more than a decade, The Heart Truth® program has worked to raise awareness about women’s risk for heart disease―the #1 killer of women in the United States―and the steps they need to make to lead a heart healthy life. Your risk for heart disease can increase significantly depending on how many risk factors you have. So take control of your heart health today!

Learn your risk for heart disease and make your heart health a priority. Start by making simple lifestyle changes that will help you reduce your risk for heart disease and talk to your doctor for guidance. Taking care of your heart will improve your overall health and will allow you to enjoy quality time with your loved ones. Make a commitment to yourself and share it with a loved one for support.
